WKONA offers the regions widest offering in joint replacement options.  Including:  knee replacement, partial knee replacement, hip replacement, ankle replacement, shoulder replacement, wrist replacement, and finger joint replacement.

Joint problems may be identified by pain, swelling, stiffness and immobility. Many issues can be treated with therapy, medication and injections, but when those treatments fail to correct the issue joint replacement may be the best option. Joint replacement can help to restore pain-free motion and function of the joint, allowing patients to return to their normal activities. Are you dealing with persistent joint pain and considering treatment to get you back in the game? Call 270.782.7800 to schedule an appointment to find out if you are a candidate for joint replacement surgery.

Arthroscopic surgery is a procedure designed to explore and identify problems within a joint, especially the knee and shoulder, and sometimes the elbow or ankle. This procedure utilizes small incisions that allow for the insertion of a miniature camera and other specialized instruments to diagnose and repair various issues. Arthroscopic surgery is minimally invasive and allows for a shorter recovery period and less risk for infection than traditional surgical methods. Are you dealing with joint issues and considering treatment? Call 270.782.7800 to schedule an appointment to see if arthroscopic surgery is needed to correct your issue.

Call 270.782.7800 to schedule an appointment to discuss solutions to living with back pain and/or a previously failed spine surgery.

Issues with the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder require specialized care because of the many muscles, tendons, and ligaments that are located in the arms and hands as well as the intricate and delicate nerves and blood vessels that give us our sense of touch. Hand and wrist injuries can cause pain, impaired function and loss of sensation and movement.

Shoulder and elbow pain may come from many causes including injuries from overuse and arthritis. Shoulder and elbow issues can severely limit the use of the arms for everyday tasks.

The board-certified physicians at WKONA are trained to identify and treat these issues using everything from conservative treatments to the latest in surgical advancements.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Thank you for choosing Western Kentucky Orthopaedic & Neurosurgical Associates. Our goal is to give you the best possible medical care when you need it and to have you feel comfortable and secure with the treatment you receive.
Our new system is a Siemens Magnetom Espree. It features a unique telescopic patient table which enables a full Field-of-View of 205 cm, without increasing total system length. For Whole-Body exams the table simple travels further out at the rear side of the system.

There’s nothing intimidating about it. Unrestricted, expansive, and with lots of breathing space, the Espree was designed with the patient in mind.

How should I prepare?

There are no restrictions regarding eating, taking medications, or activities before or after the test. The exam takes about an hour, during which time you will need to lie completely still on a comfortable padded table, since even slight movements reduce image quality.

It is essential that we know about all metallic devices that might be present inside your body such as:

  • pacemakers
  • aneurysm clips
  • artificial valves
  • cochlear devices
  • metallic fragments

Please let us know if you may be pregnant. Depending upon your MRI examination you may be able to leave your clothes on or you may be asked to change into a gown.
